An online activity provides instructional strategies that can help students engage in mathematical modeling and autonomous learning.
Digital Learning Routes: An Example of Mathematical Modeling
Salomé Martínez, Flavio Guiñez, and Darío González
Conceiving Phase Shift as Time Travel
Jeffrey Connelly and Pablo Garcia
Two teachers use homemade pendulums for their students to explore phase shift in sine curves. The use of Desmos’s Activity Builder enabled students to become mathematical explorers and supported their sense of mathematical agency.
Using Judicious Telling to Strengthen Literacy in Mathematics
Ethan P. Smith, Jennifer Kelly, Susan Sappington, Kareemah Warren, and Amanda Jansen
Language is a conduit for communicating and understanding mathematical ideas. This article explores how we can use judicious telling to attend to students’ written and spoken literacy in mathematics.
Weaving the Rainbow (Odd I)
This piece is a rumination on flow, pattern, and edges/transitions, focusing on polynomials of odd degree and overlaying/underlaying the flow of the graphical structure with a rainbow to suggest the central importance of queer visibility in mathematics.
It’s a Wrap: A New Dimension for Sinusoids
Anna Wan and Jessica Ivy
An activity connects the features of sinusoid curves to tangible manipulatives printed on a 3D printer.
